About Wellington Cable Car

One of the city's top experiences, the Wellington Cable Car unlocks stunning views over New Zealand's capital city. The bright-red carriage whisks you up to Kelburn, a hilltop neighbourhood known for its historic terraced houses. You'll also find attractions like Space Place and the Wellington Botanic Gardens.

The cable car stretches for over 600 metres along a steep slope and gains 120 metres of elevation, with the views improving as you ascend the hill. Don't miss the fascinating Cable Car Museum, which showcases the history of the city's beloved funicular, first opened in 1902.

You can either ride the cable car back down to Lambton Quay or stroll through the beautiful botanic gardens. This green expanse is filled with native trees, fragrant roses, rainbow-coloured tulips and bubbling fountains.

Getting there

The Wellington Cable Car runs between Lambton Quay in the city centre and Kelburn. The entrance is a 10-minute walk from Wellington Railway Station. A one-way trip on the Wellington Cable Car takes around five minutes. The stroll back to the city centre from Kelburn takes around 25 minutes.
